Carolyn Wilkins and Carrie Johnson

Two mystery writers share their latest novels.


There’s a hex on Charley Howard’s Hot Links Emporium, and Charley, a.k.a. the Hot Sauce King, is furious.  He suspects the Jamaican psychic who’s been “advising” his gullible wife Mabel is a phony, and he asks choir director Bertie Bigelow to do a little amateur sleuthing to help him prove it. 

She sweats every detail as a forensic firearms specialist and as a forty-something single mother. She's got more responsibilities than she can count, more baggage than she wants to claim, and way too many regrets. But Muriel Mabley will do whatever it takes to put Philadelphia's most vicious killer in lockdown for good.
